Adaras Lluvia Verdejo/Sauvignon Blanc, Spain
Bodegas Venta la Vega is located in the mountainous clay, limestone area of Almansa and includes more than 850 hectares of ecological farmland. The estate has areas under vine up to 1200 metres which encourages the creation of distinct, natural microclimates than enable the land to be farmed using sustainable and ecological techniques. Jose Angel Martinez is the talented oenologist behind these wines, who proudly champions expressing the native grape varieties.
Organic grapes are harvested in the dead of night when temperatures are cold and acidity is at its highest. A cool fermentation is followed by 4-5 months on lees, adding texture and weight to the wine.
Mouth-watering stone fruit, lime and passionfruit flavours are backed up beautifully by steely minerality and complexity well beyond its price tag.
